    Anybody know where I can get a good 2-3" body lift for an 01' 2500HD with an 8.1 in it?

    The best Body Lift is by Performance Accessories. They have the "complete" package,.and better parts. That`s what I looked into and have.

    Not that you asked my opinion but I wouldn't put a bodylift on, you have clearance issues you have to deal with and your not gonna gain any thing except look higher off the ground. Plus I know a coupel kids who have done them and one of them the body lift blocks actually kinked when the body flexed and he regretted the body lift after. If i were you I'd just save up for a mild suspension lift.

    The Performance Accessories lift is a proven body lift. True, it is a PIA to install. Especially around the engine area.
    But if done correctly, no trouble should come from it. Most of the trucks in the midwest have a body lift along with a suspension lift. And those trucks are put through some rough sh*t.
    The one thing good about a body lift is, with a plow, the angle of the blade stays the same.
    If you want more info from true 4 wheelers, go to www.PavementSucks.com.

    I also installed the PA 3" on my 04 d-max. A bit of a pain to install....i spent about 10 hours doing it by myself in the driveway.

    Its a Piaa airdam I cut very little with the bodylift, I dont know if they make one for the 05 trucks yet.If you are not going to run a BL then you will cut too much and it will not work.
